Totally agree with everything else said here.

Another issue for me is lack of transparency and lack of what would normally be considered common sense, when a good skincare or foundation product is changed to an […]

Laura Geller cosmetics, especially the baked products, are one of my favorite lines, very underrated (or rather undiscovered in most cases). They were in Sephora briefly a few years ago, then were pulled from the […]

I organize and put away behind closed cabinet doors what’s not in the current rotation.

I avoid collecting lots of samples since I end up not using them, but I will use a sample I was curious enough to have made for me.

I ignore ’em, or say amusedly that it’s just “art” and “fun stuff” for me, implying that I hold it lightly, with no implication that others should use makeup or think about it in the same way I do.

Raquel Welch and Guerlain.
Diana Ross and Nars.
Natalie Portman and Bobbi Brown.
Gisele Bundchen and Laura Mercer.
Meghan Trainor and MAC.

Unscented, works well, lowest price for the most value for me personally. When I find something I like, I quit looking around. I avoid sunscreen where possible and consider them toxic.

Love it. Want. Gorgeous photos too.

Everything stored away in matching storage, painted-wood, with shallow drawers and easy-glide action, with my most-used for a season rotated onto into a bathroom drawer.

I often mix foundation or tinted moisturizer with my regular moisturizer(s) to change the finish, make it more dewy, easier to apply.

Rarely, I will mix foundation colors to get just the right shade, but only […]

Never. I just go by instinct and overall impression that it’s OK vs. not-OK.

All shades of pink! Then my imagination quickly moves into the transition from pinks to the peach-apricot-bronze-metallics and warm red makeup colors of summer. Planning the whole stretch between March through […]

I love to “window” shop makeup online and in-store. I often look online first, then in-store, since colors can be “off” online. I also like to test products in-store, which gives me a far better sense of which […]
